Hi there, this is my first post here, please be nice...

I'm having trouble with my Mail app on my mac. I want to receieve mail from gmail, rogers and hotmail but for some reason it won't receive anything. I've used the help sections from rogers and gmail and then even downloaded app's for getting hotmail emails. Nothing works...

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hey Steve-O,

I had to install a plug in in order to get Hotmail to work. You can get it
here (www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/18189)
Not sure if it will work with Gmail and Yahoo.

Hope this helps....

Ants - GMail and Yahoo have POP servers available but you have to enable them on their website.

Steve-O,

Thanks to Chealion for pointing that out, I think I found the instructions on how to set up your Gmail account to work with Mail.

You might want to also read the FAQ as well re: configuring POP accounts.
